• Indiana legislature continues debate on tax, spending plans

    March 06, 2012 No comments

    Indiana lawmakers are working toward final agreement on several tax and spending issues in the last days of this year’s legislative session.

    House and Senate budget leaders have agreed on a plan to prohibit school districts from charging fees for full-day kindergarten in a bill directing about $80 million in state money to those programs. That bill also makes a one-time additional payment of $6 million for victims of last summer’s deadly state fair stage collapse.

    Negotiations continue on the proposed phase-out of the state inheritance tax and changing the automatic taxpayer refund championed by Governor Mitch Daniels so that the state would need more money in the bank before refunds would kick in.

    Legislative leaders are planning to adjourn the 2012 session this week.
